This or That Tag

I love doing book tags! I can't believe I've only done one other tag in the past 2 months. It's definitely time to change that! I saw this tag at Holly @ Nut Free Nerd (check out her post!), and since she tagged everyone who wanted to do it, I couldn't miss that opportunity. So here goes!

Reading on the couch or on the bed? Couch, absolutely! So many more options for how to be comfortable.

Male main character or female main character? Female, but I've loved books with both.

Sweet snacks or salty snacks when reading? Hmmm....I have quite the sweet tooth, but I have to go with salty for this one because salty snacks tend to be more bite-size.

Trilogies or quartets? I can only think of one quartet that I've finished - the Companions Quartet, and that was ages ago. I'm gonna go with quartets just because I want to see more of them. I love trilogies! But I want to see more series of different lengths.

First person POV or third person POV? This is a tough one, but I'm gonna chose first person, just because sometimes, it's a lot easier to get into a first person book than it is a third person one. I don't really know why that is - maybe it's that instant connection you get with the narrator.

Reading at night or in the morning? At night! I'm the kind of person who likes to get a head start on things that I have to do in the morning. (Not to say that I always do that. Procrastination is so, so tempting.) So if I'm reading at night, it's usually nice knowing that I've done what I have to do, and I can curl up in bed with a blanket and not even have to get up.

Libraries or bookstores? I'm going to have to go with libraries here. There's a kind of exciting energy in a lot of bookstores that I don't always get at libraries, and that's nice, but I would never be able to read as much as I do if it weren't for libraries and being able to get books for free (and legally).

Books that make you laugh or make you cry? Books that make me cry! The best books will be able to do both, but if I had to choose between just laughing and just crying, I'd have to go with just crying, since those are the books that tend to stick with me longer.

Black book covers or white book covers? I care so little that I can't even choose. I've said before that book covers don't really stand out to me unless they're particularly perfect or particularly ugly.

Character driven or plot driven stories? Plot driven. It still has to have good characters, but too often, the character driven books I've read haven't had much of a plot at all, and that's no fun.

I! If you haven't done this tag and it looks like fun, go for it.

What are your bookish opinions? Do we agree on anything? Disagree? Are there any burning bookish questions that should be in this tag and aren't? Tell me in the comments!  


  1. I honestly don't like libraries. I don't know, I guess it's just the book snob in me liking to have my own physical copy of a book, whoops. Plot driven books are much better, too, though I love books with a super strong plot AND characters! It's just the cherry on top to have both. <3

    1. I love having my own physical copy of a book, too! But I love libraries because I don't have to pay for everything I read, and I take more chances because if I don't like a book I pick up, I don't feel like I've wasted money on it.

August Wrap-Up

I'm having a bunch of weird feelings about it being the last day of August right now. I mean, I love autumn, and I'm SO EXCITED that summer is coming to an end because it means cooler temperatures and flannel and pumpkin-flavored things and pretty colors, but at the same time...there's just no way that today's the last day of August. That's not a thing that's happening right now in my head. It's just not. I think I'm stuck near the end of July somewhere.

And with the end of August comes the end of summer break. Within a week, I'll be starting my second year of college! Equal parts exciting and intimidating. The week or so is definitely going to be hectic, what with moving and such, so any posts I manage to get up will be scheduled in advance.

August was a pretty great reading month for me - I was actually hoping to get a bit more in, considering it's my last month of 2017 without classes, but I think I still did rather well. And in terms of star …

Top Ten Favorite Books of 2017

So, I haven't posted since the beginning of the month, because finals totally destroyed me. But I'm here now! And for the gazillionth time in four months, I'm saying that I'm gonna get back onto a normal posting schedule. But for now, I have plenty of things to post this week since it's one of my favorite times of year - wrapping things up at the very end!

Yes, it's nearly the end of 2017. And personally, I will not be sorry about kissing this year goodbye. I've had a pretty good reading year, and not a bad personal year! But 2017 as a global phenomenon has not been great, and I don't think I'm alone in that sentiment. It's made me really want to focus on the good this year, especially in the form of books! So without further ado, here are my top ten books I read this year.

10. LADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare (The Dark Artifices #1): Based on all the other Cassandra Clare books I've read, I was in no way expecting this to make it onto my favo…

Ten Books I Want My Cousins to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme: Ten Books You Want Your Children/Godchildren/Young Relatives/Etc. To Read.

Hi, everyone! *waves* Long time, no post. School kind of...ate me. But I'm back, at least for today. I don't know what I'm going to do about a consistent schedule, and I don't know whether I'm going to really start back now, but here I am. And what better place to start than a Top Ten Tuesday?

When I saw this week's Top Ten Tuesday prompt, my mind immediately went to my cousins, specifically the ones that are closest to my age. I have a feeling that the books I picked are more YA than a lot of other people's lists, because my cousins aren't all that little anymore! I'm the oldest of that group, and I love them dearly even though I don't get to see them a lot. There are so many books out there that I think they'd enjoy or that I think would be valuable for them to read (or both), so …
